Use Weed-Shield as a barrier to weed development in home landscaping and gardens, under patios and decks, under walkways and paths, vegetable and flower gardens.
- Weed Shield can be placed directly over grass but it is preferable to clear the area first. Prepare the planting area by spraying existing weeds and recurring ones with a nonselective systemic weed-killer which kills to the roots.
- Alternatively, remove existing grass and weeds before installation.
- For added protection, a pre-emergent herbicide soil treatment to prevent future germination of weed seeds is also recommended.
